It's five days of non-stop fun! Take your child to a neighborhood camp so they can stay connected with friends. This 9-week camp is held Monday-Friday, May 26-July 24. Due to the holiday, camp will not be held Friday, July 3.
Summer Activity Camp is licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and is open to children ages 6-14.
With the assistance of many on-site presentations from community partners, campers will experience a variety of life-long learning opportunities such as cooking along with mentoring on financial education, gang awareness and reading. Of course the summer wouldn't be complete without a few field trips, swimming, games, crafts, movies and other fun recreational activities.
Off-site field trips are scheduled at various locations throughout Wichita. Past trips have included Watson Park, the Palace Theatre, Carousel Skate Center, All Star Sports and Adventures, and swimming at the Wichita Public Pools.
All site Directors have a Bachelor's Degree or comparable experience in recreation, education or related field. All staff members attend training each year in compliance with the KDHE regulations. Ratios of 1 counselor to 15 children (1 counselor to 20 children at Woodard) are maintained at all times.
